Among three topics of the Hachathon, SAO Network team chose to build under the topic of Web3 Mass Adoption. Chase Wang, the CTO of SAO Network, explained the design philosophy of their work, “We were inspired by the famous social networking theory of Six Degrees of Separation so that we developed a Web3 personal card product named X-Card to provide social connections showing as a social graph between user’s Soul-bound NFTs and utilize SAO Network’s access control & SAO DID solutions to protect user’s data privacy at the same time.”

Under the slogan of “Change, Chance, Challenge,” the Seoul Web 3.0 Festival 2023 explored innovative ideas and provided opportunities for potential partnerships. SAO Network has made connections with companies such as Cronos, Beosin, and Alibaba Cloud Korea office, and some media partners.
